Nor sure if this will help Bill, but the following is what I have had to deal with over the last ten years with Sarawana in the forward cabin.
1/ water through the ceiling where the coach house meets the deck. The problem here was the seal running across where the the deck house meets the deck had worked loose. To see whether this may be a problem for you, remove the cabin header lining, not difficult, run a hose across the joint only and see if there is any water ingress. Make sure you just run the water there, don't do a general spray of the forward deck.
2/ water seepage through the deck mounted anchor winch foot switch.We solved that one by removing the foot switch and re bedding with Sika.Again not difficult.
3/ Window channels clogging up. Not sure what type of windows your boat has but if they are the old wooden sliders, make sure the drain holes are clear, they are prone to clogging, and will let water in.
4/ main front windows, check the condition of the glass bedding at the bottom of your three windows
Bill, I don't think you quite answered Scott's question. That is, where on the ceiling is the drip located?
The only thing you can count on with leaks is water flows downhill(well mostly)
Bugger about your elbow.
